“Great lanes, good food, service could be a whole lot better!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Seems to be confusion over the groupon deal. clearly states 1 order of tacos or mac n cheese PER person. up to a $7.49 value EACH. I was given one plate of tacos (2) to share between 4 people. Also was suppose to receive 2 orders of tater tots to split between 4 ppl and was given one. Servers need to be clear on the groupon deal and honor what customers paid for! 2 tacos and one order of tater tots to share between 4 people is ridiculous. i didnt even bother to point out these things because our waitress already seem to have an attitude over what I have no idea maybe it was working on a busy Sunday evening. I have no clue. Wish the service was better I really enjoy the atmosphere of the place itself.

“Great Place to Bowl”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

I've been to North Bowl numerous times. With friends and the boyfriend. And then again for a work outing and my daughter's birthday party. I have to say, this place is impressive. From the cool decor, to the good prices, the nice staff and the food.. those tater-tots are to die for!
If you are looking for a nice time out - North Bowl is the place to go. No narly bowling alley smell of stank feet will you find here. Their bathrooms are clean, they have a photobooth, a nice bar and a cool menu. They have limited parking but there's many available spots on the surrounding blocks.

“The Dude would hang here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2012

It's not an enormous bowling alley, but if you like to bowl it's a fun place that's not too expensive. They have a separate bar which is nice to wait at while a lane opens up. The food is pretty awesome considering it's not a restaurant. They have tater tots Napoleon! Upstairs is a private section with 2 lanes, a bar and some pool tables . . it's mainly used for parties. Lastly, the parking isn't great so definitely car pool or plan to take public transportation. In a nut shell it's Lucky Strikes cooler brother.
